Program Overview

The teacher preparation programs at Augusta University place a strong emphasis on “hands-on” experiences with professional educators in actual classroom settings. Students should expect a field experience as a part of most courses in the preparation process. Clinical and field experiences are monitored for each student to ensure that they have had the opportunity to work with diverse populations in a wide variety of educational levels and settings.
